TELL YOUR STORY


Bring your sounds into songs in 12 weeks

Get the guidance you need to arrange your sounds into professional songs using Ableton Live


What makes a good song?

In the core of every song is an emotional story. Which takes the listener on a sonic journey. Reaching such a level of a storytelling song arrangement takes time and dedication which is beyond of just knowing the technical aspects of music production.

In this program, we will touch on these points and figure out what makes a song so powerful and emotionally captivating. So you can implement this knowledge and skills in YOUR music production.

Make your songs sound convincing and engaging

Through my experience of playing multiple styles of music and filling almost every part in a band structure as a multi-instrumentalist, I learned the most essential aspect, which is crucial for any music to sound engaging and powerful. And that is the advanced communication between the different instruments.

In any band or musical group, the musicians are connected through sound and communicate mostly without talking. This communication makes the song sound organic, natural, convincing, and emotionally powerful.

As a music producer, it is on you to create this communication between the sounds that you’re generating. Then, to plan, structure, convey and make it convincing enough for the listeners to keep on listening, stay engaged and get the full experience of the musical piece.

In this program, you will learn to think like a trained musician and to plan your song to sound believable, organic, interesting, and engaging.

How would your life look like?

Hi, I'm Roy Perez

A music producer, DJ, drummer, sound engineer, Ableton Certified Trainer and musician.

I was (and still am) always fascinated about the way music influences us as listeners and how we as music producers can get our listeners to feel a certain way based on sound.

What makes a song so captivating and gets everyone who hears it to sing along, dance and get their mind to travel into another dimension.

Creating music all my life and looking closely at the topic of music and the human brain I discovered many facts about how we as music producers can use the technology in Ableton Live to our advantage and gain more listeners by working in a storytelling approach.

Get the guidance and support you need to take action and make your music

What My Students Say

Franklin Schieman, Netherlands. He's a professional saxophone player and teacher and used to work with Logic before diving in Ableton.

"I was very surprised about the level of the course. People think they can do it at home. But you have to have a lot of expertise, a lot of know-how and stamina."

Yu-Shen Chiu, Taiwan. She is a self-taught musician and learned audio video productions.

"I've tried to find a lot of ways to learn Ableton online. But all the different YouTube videos and tutorials are all over the place. In this course, all is put together. I can finally use Ableton instead of learning all the different pieces. I can finally use the knowledge and create something own."

"The course is chock full of very valuable and useful information. It is presented in a manner that is understandable and that builds week to week. It allow us to jump right in and make something, which is basically what we all want to do. The combination of the videos, which can be replayed, and the live Q&A sessions offer a comprehensive look and feel for Ableton. " - Ellen Jakes Kelm

  • Always find yourself starting new projects instead of finishing the ones you started before.
  • Have a hard drive full of unfinished songs and you can't figure out how to bring them to the finish line.
  • Feel you often don't know how to begin when wanting to get creative and create new music.
  • Have the feeling that you can easily create loops but struggle to get past that stage.
  • Get bored from your own music and don't know how to make it more interesting and engaging.
  • Don't have any or just some knowledge of music theory.
  • Already have some knowledge of Ableton Live but have the feeling that you are not using it to its full extent to create and finish music.
  • Love music so much that you are willing to devote some time to it in your day to day life.

Does it sound like you?

"Being distracted by the wide range of options in terms of tools, plugins, samples, 3rd party packs, YouTube videos, I find it extremely hard to quickly layout my musical idea down before I get sick with the tedious and ineffective and decision-makings for unnecessary and non-essential things in the process of the "first sketch" of the song.
This course is exactly helping me with this issue.
I definitely recommend this course to everyone who is struggling with efficiently laying out musical ideas and finishing a song."
- Nicholas Chan

AT THE END OF THIS PROGRAM

After the program is over you will be able to start and complete your songs!

The teacher is very responsive to questions and gracefully keeps you from going down the DAW rabbit holes. Making music is important to us and in 4 weeks you will build the skills to get good musical ideas sketched out.

Timothy Simpson

Roy is a very comforting instructor, and he deconstructed Ableton for beginners in a way that made it easy to take off. The Q&A sessions were very useful, particularly when Roy showed examples of the power of Ableton in his quickly assembled arrangements. Thanks to this, I don't feel any hesitation it starting Ableton and playing with it.

Kartikeya Tripathi

Roy is a great teacher. He makes the lessons very accessible by explaining the elements and then demonstrating them. I also found the live Q&A calls very helpful. I highly recommend this course.

Mary Mazurek

I liked how well presented and put were the instructional video. And the patience Roy had as an instructor. Not so many people that know a thing, have such skill to transmit an idea, and the patience to do so.
